RIVERSIDE, Calif. - The Presidential election is now 64 days away and the Riverside County Registrar’s office is recruiting for what is sure to be a busy election night.
Rebecca Spencer, Riverside’s registrar of voters, says there is no experience necessary to be a "temporary elections assistant" and they have a number of positions to fill.
“Data entry, answering phones, customer service, helping voters at the voting assistant centers, helping them get checked in helping answer their questions about how to use the voting equipment. So we have a wide range of different assignments,” said Spencer.
The county currently needs 1,600 temporary elections assistants. Most will report to the headquarters at 2724 Gateway Drive in Riverside. From there, the new hires will be dispersed to the 120 voting centers throughout the county.

Spencer said applicants will go through a background check, a physical to check for any lifting restrictions and of course, coronavirus precautions will follow.
“There’s a lot of overtime so that’s one thing that we like to prep everybody with. There’s a lot of work to be done in a very short amount of time so there’s lot so overtime involved but usually, people are very excited to do it especially before the holidays,“ Spencer said.
The job pays $15 an hour and since it is temporary, you get to pick how much you want to work and for how long.
